This reference design demonstrates the use of the AWR1642 single-chip mmWave sensor with integrated DSP as a vehicle occupant detection sensor enabling the detection of occupants in a vehicle. This design provides a reference processing chain that runs on the C674x DSP, enabling generation of a heat map to detect occupants in a field of view (FOV) of ±60 degrees.
